Hailing from Windsor, Ontario, Fouad Abiad started bodybuilding in 2001 when his friend and local competitor encouraged him to give it a shot. Genetically gifted, he had already assembled a physique that had thick, full muscle bellies that were perfectly proportioned on his already large frame. It turned out Fouad also had the excruciating discipline for the punishing training sessions he would need to make it in his quest to one day stake his place on the stages of professional bodybuilding. It was 2001 that launched him into the spotlight when he entered and won his first show at the Windsor Cup in the heavyweight division. From that point on, intense focus, along with his heavily muscled physique, continued to help him build a resume that boasted first-place finishes at the Canadian Championships from 2004-2006. It was that success that eventually led Fouad to acquiring his IFBB pro card, catapulting him into the pro ranks. And he didn't disappoint. After competing in just three pro contests, he's already cracked the top ten twice, lending credibility to the fact that Fouad will surely be a force to be reckoned with as he takes aim at the Tampa Bay Pro and the Europa Pro in an attempt to qualify for his first Mr. Olympia in September ! Outside of bodybuilding, Fouad is an online nutrition consultant and personal trainer. With a background in criminology, Fouad was studying to be a police officer until he decided to focus all of his efforts on bodybuilding. When Fouad isn't training he enjoys music, business and customizing cars. Growing up, Fouad was inspired by his father, older brother and sister, who all showed him that hard work, drive, focus and ambition are what it takes to reach the goals that you set out to achieve. Plans for 2008 : Tampa Bay Pro Show, Europa Pro Show and qualify for the Olympia.(biography : MuscleTech.com)
